‘Survivor’ Cast-Off Chills Out, Gets Run Out Of Town

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – One reality show reject’s chilled-out vibe ended up getting him run right out of town.

Michael “Frosti” Zernow is the latest contestant to get the boot from Survivor: China this past Thursday (Nov. 15), and Frosti says his cool and collected character may have cost him the cash.

Frosti says, “I tried to play the cleanest game, I barely lied and really didn’t do any backstabbing. I probably would’ve stayed longer if I did more backstabbing.”

And while Frosti is an avid practitioner of Parkour – a style of free-running that turns the city into an obstacle course – his fancy footwork wasn’t enough to keep him on the show’s solid ground.

He says, “I wanted to climb coconut trees but we didn’t have any! I was hoping there’d be obstacle courses – that’s something I could’ve shown my talent at.”

But his free-running did provide Frosti with one important Far-East escape.

He jokes, “I actually got chased by two tigers and rode a panda to one of the challenges. The camera didn’t show that.”

Survivor: China airs Thursdays on CBS.
